Rozin | Golinder Law – Newark Divorce Lawyer and Alimony Lawyer
Alimony (also called spousal support) can be awarded when one spouse earns significantly more than the other or other special factors exist. An example would be when one parent stays home to care for children in lieu of a career outside the home.
If you need help understanding whether you can get financial spousal support (alimony) in Newark New Jersey, Rozin | Golinder Law can provide that help.
The person requesting alimony should be able to demonstrate why he/she needs alimony. If the parties are in disagreement on alimony, a judge can determine if alimony is appropriate in their situation.
Once you agree or the court orders alimony, it is binding.
The court usually considers the following factors when granting alimony: the spouses’ present and future earnings and their earning abilities; their health, and age; their efforts to become self-supporting; length of the marriage; their reasonable needs, including life and health insurance; their standard of living during the marriage; and their property and debt settlement as part of their divorce or legal separation.
